MTG rants over the state of government
On December 5, Georgia's most-outspoken and controversial Republican - Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene - made her latest online attack towards other politicians in Washington, DC.
It wasn't just the Democrats who came under fire from MTG, but Republicans as well - she appears to hold both equally responsible for enacting what she called "America LAST" policies that are (in her opinion) completely ineffective in tackling the issues faced by the nation today.
It's a familiar subject for followers of the Georgia Republican, and in recent weeks she has been increasingly critical not just of her political enemies in the Democrats, but also Republicans in her own party who fail to share her priorities and tackle the issues that she feels are most important.
On this occasion, her online rant was prompted (once again) by what Georgia's Taylor-Greene sees as the federal government being complicit in the problems caused by a lack of action to prevent the trafficking of drugs and illegal immigrants into the United States. As MTG put it:
"America LAST Washington DC is aiding and abetting criminal cartels, who make BILLIONS from drug and human trafficking, and absolutely refuses to stop the biggest invasion in our history that is responsible for killing Americans!!!"
Her closing-statement, full of abbreviations suggesting she had typed it in a hurry, demonstrates that MTG sees the blame sitting with those on both sides of the political aisle:
"I blame R’s and D’s bc we do NOTHING to stop it."
Presumably given that she is a vocal member of the House of Representatives, and has demonstrated herself as unafraid both to block legislation that has a clear humanitarian purpose as well as proposing amendments that are both divisive and frivolous (depending on opinions), then MTG would consider herself to be part of the problem too?
MTG frustrated by the Republican party
It's a familiar subject for the Georgia Republican lately. In early November, shortly after her latest proposal had been roundly defeated in the House of Representatives, MTG took to Twitter once again, where she vented at the 23 Republicans who had voted against her latest motion, and another 13 who didn't even show up to vote.
The bipartisan defeat was a source of great disappointment, and prompted her to lash-out publicly at various of the House Republicans who'd sided against her. Sadly though it reflects an experience that has been repeated for her many times lately.
It follows in a year when MTG has clearly fallen out of favor in the GOP. Earlier this year, she was ousted from the far-right 'Freedom Caucus' after her colleagues were becoming frustrated with her ongoing conduct, culminating in a well-publicized war of words with Colorado Republican Lauren Boebert on the floor of Congress.
MTG more focused on making money?
The main thing that MTG has diverted her attention to lately, aside from complaining about her Republican colleagues, has been in trying to make money for her campaign fund. Her recently-published book 'MTG' has attracted mixed reviews, and has been widely mocked by readers and TV hosts alike.
In the last month, Georgia's MTG launched her latest line of festive merchandise - Christmas wrapping paper and sweaters featuring (and mocking) President Joe Biden.
Time will tell whether the Georgia Republican manages to repair her status within the Republican party in 2024.
